I will be taking up college algebra as a summer course starting early July. I wish that my timing could have been different, but I just wanted to get most of my complex courses (A&P I, II, English Comp I, II) out of the way first before I take this course. I plan on applying to my CC nursing program in the fall. I will be taking up Micro, college chemistry and developmental psych in the fall as well. As you can see, I need to complete this course by the end of summer. Like any other ambitious student, I would prefer an 'A' in this course. At the very least, I can accept a 'B', but if I get any grade lower than a 'B' at the moment, my chances of acceptance into the CC nursing program are pretty much shot.
Is there anyone out there who can offer me any advice or tips on getting through college algebra with a decent grade. Math is certainly not my friend, and I would deeply appreciate whatever help I can get.
